Art Deco-era RoboCop!

I found this at Dangerous Minds.

Sometimes I think Modernism was the peak of western civilisation. There's a vision of humanity overcoming all obstacles with modern technology that seems to ooze out of all the wonderful Art Deco style. It's such a shock when you compare it to the sense that 'everything has already been done' that permeates postmodernism.

Yet the radio-controlled police robot above doesn't seem that far removed from RoboCop.
